The Great House at Sonning, Reading
Fabulous hotel
An absolutely wonderful stay at this very dog friendly hotel. Room, food, staff excellent. So comfortable and very popular with the locals. Can’t say anything negative only that there is not an awful lot to do in the area just dog walking along the Thames which suited us.

Generally very good with modern decor and comfort and cleanliness hard to fault. Breakfast was a little small for the cost in my view

The Great House at Sonning, Reading
I stay away on business 3 nights a week. This is the best value hotel I’ve stayed in in a long time . Lovely room and great adjoining restaurant. Was also £20 less the the two household name ‘budget’ hotels I’d stayed in on the previous two nights. Definitely go again
